Fish oil and especially fish oil for weight loss purposes is becoming more and more popular. It is proven and accepted by science that fish oil carries lots of benefits, but is it really useful for weight loss or are we just looking on the marketing claims of another pointless weight loss supplement? Is it maybe even dangerous to consume fish oil? After all a food poisoning from fish products can be deadly, just think about you happen to consume rancid variations of fish oil. All these questions and many more will be answered in the following post. Furthermore we will provide you with our personal review of fish oil weight loss.

1. How is fish oil produced

Fish oil is produced from the fat tissue of certain fish types that contain large amounts of omega-3 fatty acids like salmon. Furthermore it contains large amounts of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), which are both considered very healthy). It is usually available as a weight loss supplement in form of pills and bottled as normal oil, the bottled version is the less expensive one. You can learn more about their healthy attributes in the next paragraph.

2. Fish oil (weight loss) benefits

The omega-3 fatty acids as well as EPA and DHA are reported to help many different diseases like cancer (shown by several studies), cardiovascular problems ( it is recommended by The American Heart Association to consume 0,5g per day), depression, Alzheimer´s disease (shown by a study of the Louisiana State University), Lupus, Parkinson´s disease and Psoriasis.

The above shown health benefits of fish oil should probably be enough to consume it on a regular basis, but how does it help with weight loss?

A fish oil weight loss study has shown that fish oil triggers a certain hormone that is responsible for weight loss other studies however came to the conclusion that fish oil doesn´t help with weight loss at all. You can find our personal review of fish oil and our opinion on it at the end of the post.

3. Fish oil dosage for weight loss and possible side effects

Usually a dosage of 3g to 6g per day is recommended for weight loss more shouldn´t be consumed, because of the possible side effects like diarrhea, increased gas and acid reflux. Furthermore today’s oceans are quite polluted leaving traces of quicksilver in the fish fat depots and by this polluting the oil that is derived from them.

If you are just trying to improve your health 1g of it a day should be more then enough!

4. Our personal review

We tested fish oil over the course of 14 weeks consuming 5g per day, which exactly equaled 5 pills a day for each of us. After the 14 weeks we both hadn´t lost a single pound of fat, however we are still consuming fish oil today because of its other beneficial properties. However we are consuming less at the moment, because to profit from its health benefits it is enough to consume around 1g of it a day. This also reduces the risks / side effects involved with it.
In conclusion we would defiantly recommend it to anyone who wants to life healthier, but if you are only trying to lose a few pounds fish oil weight loss isn´t the way to go.
